Doctor Who fans worldwide are rejoicing after watching one of the most anticipated episodes in the show's 50-year history.

The Day of the Doctor was simulcast to more than 75 countries to the delight of millions of fans who tuned in.

Avid fans, or Whovians, in Australia were up early today to watch the broadcast at public screenings and events at 6:50am (AEDT).

But the early start did not dampen their spirits and many dressed up as their favourite characters for the occasion.

There were cheers, laughter and tears among those watching in Melbourne.

"I had a couple of tears, which is fantastic. That's always the best thing about Doctor Who," said one Whovian.

"I can't really pick out a favourite part; it was fantastic all the way through," said another fan.

The Day of the Doctor featured doctors past and present, including current Doctor Matt Smith, and the first appearance of new Time Lord, Peter Capaldi.

Australia has strong connections with the long-running science fiction series, which was first broadcast on the ABC in 1965.

The iconic theme music was written by Queensland musician and composer Ron Grainer.

The biggest event was in London, where thousands of Whovians flocked for a three-day convention.

The special episode will be replayed tonight at 7:30pm on ABC1.
